Ronnie: Tasmanian Songman

Author(s): Ronnie Summers; Helen Gee

* Tasmaniana

Raised on a remote Australian island, Ronnie Summers overcame racism, poverty, and illiteracy to become a respected Tasmanian Aboriginal elder. This poignant memoir recalls the various stages of Ronnie s life: his outcast status as a child; his battle against alcoholism; his struggle for literacy as an adult; and his lifelong commitment to storytelling, craftsmanship, and music that kept his spirit strong in the face of adversity. Told with humor and sincerity, this chronicle is moving and enlightening, and the included CD of Cape Barren music gives further depth to this inspiring story."
